Throughout your life there has probably been an experience you were either very dissatisfied with or extremely satisfied with. It could be a hotel you stayed at; a product you bought, such as a microwave oven; or a service you received, such as a car wash or a server at a restaurant. Write a one paragraph letter of complaint or praise to the company/person/manufacturer of the experience and describe the causes and/or effects of the experience. Your answer should consist of a well-developed paragraph, which means your first sentence should answer the question(s) (i.e., topic sentence), and the following sentences should support the topic sentence. The paragraph should be unified and coherent with specific supporting details or examples from the story. The sentences should be clear, concise, and arranged in a logical order. Transitions, pronouns, and repetition should be used to provide coherence. The paragraph should follow a cause and effect format. As you participate in this Module′s Discussion, please, keep in mind that in order to receive points for your post and the replies, you should make sure to follow all of the requirements set for it. For example, all posts and replies must be submitted by the due dates; adhere to the prompt and all of its elements, such as point of view, formatting; finally, in your replies, comment on the very specific aspects of writing you have learned about in Module 1, 2, and 3. Please, read and respond to all the posts and replies, including mine for further guidance and examples. Your paragraph should be well-developed, which means you need a topic sentence, supporting sentences, and a concluding sentence (clincher). The paragraph should be unified and coherent with specific supporting details or examples for support. It should provide sentence variety (simple, compound, and complex sentences). The sentences should be clear, concise, and arranged in a logical order. Transitional words and phrases should be used to provide coherence. As you respond to three of your peers, please, focus on addressing the concepts you have studied in this and the previous modules, such as coherence, unity, transitions, sentence variety, paragraph structure, parallel structure, and be as specific and detailed in your responses as possible, quoting specific sections or pointing to them in the peers′ writings in order to be as helpful with your critique as possible. In order to address all the above mentioned concepts, these replies need to be substantial and clear, so just a couple of sentences will not suffice here. Think of each reply as a well developed paragraph and illustrated paragraph. PLEASE, BOLD YOUR TOPIC SENTENCE AND DOUBLE SPACE YOUR WRITING. DO NOT USE ANY OUTSIDE SOURCES FOR ANY OF THE WRITINGS IN THIS CLASS UNLESS SPECIFICALLY ASKED TO.

Carnival Cruise Line
Dear Madam/ Sir
Letter of Appreciation

Last July 2020 my daughter and I took a cruise on the Carnival Magic, I wanted to express the joy we felt during our seven-day stay. We arrived at the airport and members of your crew were there to met us with cards in hand identifying we were the party they were looking for, which made me feel so special. They took our luggage and boarded us onto the bus to travel to the Carnival terminal. Once we arrived at the ship check-in went very smoothly. We were escorted to our rooms; on arrival, everything was where it should have been. The rooms were clean and well stocked with linens and towels. The course of the next seven days was nothing sort of heaven. The experience at the theater show felt like the Broadway shows in New York. Dinners were exceptionally fun because put on our fancy clothes, making it more of a treat the Captain came and had dinner with us. There were many excursions to choose from or you could go shopping while partaking in island food we decided to do both. The clubs and piano bars were fabulous, the crew keeps the drinks coming. We were treated like we mattered not just a paying customer. It was a memorable experience, when I arrived home, I expressed just how much fun I had, my girlfriends and I booked for this coming July to sail on the Mardi Gras, looking forward to seeing you and your great crew. Thank you for your excellent customer service to us making our trip utterly worth it, outstanding.

To whom it may concern,

Just recently I was at your store # 706 in Zephyrhills, FL and I had to address my experience in your store. In order for you to understand my situation, I have to give you a bit of background. For the past 2yrs or so I have not been able to go to a store by myself like everyone else because of my health. BUT I really wanted to complete a project and had nobody so I figured I would go and see what happens. I got to the store and almost immediately started to cry because I asked the staff in the parking for help with a buggy, I got an eye roll and the employees walked away from me not even acknowledging my request. I called the store and asked if someone could bring a buggy to my car and was told they weren’t sure how long it would take because everyone was pretty busy, then your employee asked me “Are you sure you can’t get it yourself” I told her I couldn’t do it myself and I wanted to speak with a manager. Your Manager was no better with her attitude, BUT she did bring me a buggy. Once she realized she knew who I was she apologized since they have all seen me in the store and know I need help. I know in this time we live in everyone is upset about something or complaining about treatments BUT this is NOT something I did to myself or provoked by me. So maybe YOUR STAFF need to be reminded that DISABLED PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE. Also I will be posting this on line and where others in my situation can see it.

Dear Mrs. Thornton,

Recently, I reserved a room at your nice hotel. Upon arrival I was greeted by an unpleasant lady behind the counter, who appeared to be your receptionist. When I greeted her, she never responded. Five minutes later, she decided to ask me my name and if I had a reservation. I replied, “Yes.” She then proceeded to tell me the check out time, asked for funds, and upon giving me back my card and the key to the room she shoved them at me. I decided to walk off and just inform the company about her behavior and her manners.

The next issue was my room. Once we entered the room we noticed the trash had not been empty from the previous occupants. So, my mother decided to enter the bathroom just to check it and it had not been clean and there were dirty towels and washcloths on the floor by the toilet. So, I took it one step further and decided to pull the sheets back on the bed and when I did I was completely appalled! Those sheets had not been changed and a huge brown spot the size of a plate was on the sheets.

I am writing to inform you that I did go back to the front office to report that room and decided that I did not want to stay at your establishment. I was offered another room. However, I decided to just leave. I asked for my money back and was told that it would be placed back on my card within 24 hours. It has been a week and it has not been placed back on my card. So, if the money is not back on my card within the next week, I will be taking further actions. If you have any questions or need to talk about this experience I had, feel free to contact me at (229) 388-1476.

Respectfully,

Angela Smith
